Swansea striker Bafetimbi Gomis had to be escorted from the field by medics after he fainted on the White Hart Lane pitch on Wednesday night.

Gomis medical histories prove he has experienced such incidents before in his career and was not taken to the hospital and Swansea later confirmed the player was ‘Fine’.

The France forward collapsed seven minutes into the game at White Hart Lane, with players from both sides very worried as the medical teams from both clubs sought to revive Gomis, 29.

After about 5-minute, the player looked to have regained consciousness and he left the field on a stretcher, to the applause of the crowd as well as the players.

Casting our mind back to March 2012, Fabrice Muamba, who was playing for Bolton, suffered cardiac arrest during an FA Cup quarter-final at White Hart Lane. Muamba recovered in hospital but was unable to resume his playing career.

Gomis experienced a similar incident after joining Lyon in the summer of 2009 and he also fainted while training with France in October of the same year.
